Keith Urban was in a motorcycle accident on Sunday after being chased by paparazzi. In a statement released to Access Hollywood, Urban said he was headed to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting on his motorcycle in Sydney when he found himself being pursued by a photographer.
Ã¢â¬ÅTodayÃ¢â¬â¢s incident was the result of one personÃ¢â¬â¢s desire to do his job and my desire to maintain my privacy. Some have already attempted to inflate the facts, but the reality is this; while out riding to an AA meeting, a time when my privacy is especially important to me, I felt myself being pursued. I sped up, and in an effort to elude an oncoming car which was making an illegal u-turn, saw no choice but to drop my bike,Ã¢â¬Â Urban said in the statement. Ã¢â¬ÅIn actual fact, my pursuer came to my assistance, without taking photos, and helped me from the road. I returned home, got my car, and continued on my way.Ã¢â¬Â
I’m glad it was nothing serious.
